Murderer Confesses After Arrest

A murderer of two people at separate locations has confessed after his arrest by the police that crime could never be covered.

Victor Amewugah, aged 27 and chainsaw operator, told newsmen in Sunyani on Wednesday that he killed his victims and took their taxi cabs away because of avarice and the desire to acquire wealth and material possession instantly.

He said crime was not good because no matter how one committed and where one committed it would b e exposed.

The suspect made this confession at the Brong-Ahafo Regional Police headquarters where he had been brought for charges to be preferred against him and also to tell the world of his regret for committing the two heinous crimes.

Amewugah, married with one child, advised those involved in armed robbery and car snatching as well as those with the intention to do same as means of livelihood to change because the end result is unbearable.

“I could not sleep because the ghost of a second person I murdered around Akim Oda was hunting me, hence I informed my friend of the nightmare who alerted the Oda Police for my arrest,” he said.

Briefing the media later, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Christopher Tawiah, the Brong-Ahafo Regional Police Public Relations Officer said on June 7 2013 one Isaac Owusu, aged 29, was murdered by an unknown person at Derma in the Tano South District.

ASP Tawiah said the murderer bolted with a taxi cab, Kia Rio with the registration number AS 646 – 13 which belonged to the deceased, adding that Police hunt for suspect’s arrest proved futile.

He said on June 8, 2013 Police relayed information across the country and preliminary investigation revealed that Amewugah was driving the deceased’s taxi cab in the Eastern Region.

On March 8, 2014, Amewugah was arrested from his hide out by the Akim Oda Police and he confessed having killed two taxi drivers, one at Derma and the other in the Eastern Region.
